TRENDING: Turtlenecks

Turtlenecks: The awkward trend made popular by preppy professionals from the 50s to 90s has officially made a comeback. Maybe this trend is just a designer’s tribute to the late Steve Jobs? (P.S. We advise those with particularly large heads or short necks to, um, stay away from this trend, if possible.) read more…

HEADLINES: Rose Rocks It, Ferris Returns, and Shailene Is On My Last Nerve.

The SAG Awards were last night. And Shailene Woodley used the opportunity to really piss me off in this Hawaiian shirt dress. Those shoe-gloves were strike one. This is an offensive strike two. You’re walking on thin ice, my dear. (FabSugar)

Please tell me how Angeline Jolie’s body differs from LeAnn Rimes’? Why do we celebrate one and bully the other? I wonder what Ange looks like in a bikini … I bet LeAnn has more muscle mass, jus sayin’ (US Weekly)

Save Ferris! (People)

How much does it cost to send a celebrity down the red carpet? A shit-load! Who pays? Not the celebrity, that’s for sure. The more money you make, the more free stuff you get. It’s an unfair world. (The Cut)

I will never get tired of looking at Scott and Garance. Because it’s only when they are photographed together that we can appreciate Scott’s stature, or lack there of. (Fashionista)

LOVE THIS! Rose Byrne wore a killer jumpsuit last night. Of course I wish she didn’t have a 6-year-old’s bowl cut, but you pick your battles. (Huff Post Style)

Celebrity math, Macaulay Culkin style! (BuzzFeed)

This is hard-hitting, investigative journalism, people. read more…
